Auto show at­tracts fewer vis­i­tors

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

The ParisMo­tor Show 2016 lured fewer vis­i­tors com­pared with the last one in 2014, mainly due to a per­ceived risk of ter­ror­ist at­tacks, or­ga­niz­ers said onMon­day. From Sept 29 to Oct 16, about 1.1 mil­lion peo­ple vis­ited the bi­en­nial auto ex­hi­bi­tion at la Porte de Ver­sailles ex­hi­bi­tion cen­ter, down by 14 per­cent from 2014. “The de­crease in the num­ber of its vis­i­tors com­pared with the 2014 edi­tion should be put in the con­text of the 15 to 30 per­cent de­crease in the at­ten­dance rate of all na­tional events since Nov 13, 2015,” or­ga­niz­ers said in a state­ment.
